It's been a month since keeping this strict diet without gluten, dairy, sugar, soy and alcohol. Besides the 3 main dishes + snacks meal plan, I also leave you below some of my impressions of this first month, together with my mistakes and my goals for the next month.
3 Main Dishes + Snacks Meal Plan
Let's start with one of my daily meal plan you can inspire yourselves from. This time, my meals were not vegan as I included fish and eggs.
Breakfast: Pouched Eggs with Bell Pepper and Gluten Free Bread
Luckily, there is a bakery in my town where you can find gluten free bread two times a week. They have a type with buckwheat flour and another one with almond flour. My favourite is the one with buckwheat flour although it has too many seeds in it, but still, it has a better taste.
Therefore, for breakfast I cooked two pouched eggs (if you don’t know how to make a pouched egg, here is the recipe), and I associated them with bell pepper strips. This is all I had in the house for breakfast at the moment but you can pair the eggs with avocado and other veggies too.
Lunch: Fried Fish with Boiled Potatoes and Cashew Cheese
This might be the healthier version of fast food. I had a trout, I washed it, cut into small pieces, mixed 1 egg with some corn flour, and then I gave the fish chunks through this mixture and then fried them in boiling oil.
In the meantime I washed and cut the potatoes smaller and boiled them.
Afterwards I grated over some cashew cheese (or whatever vegan cheese do you use).
I enjoyed all this with gluten free polenta. You can find the recipe on the website too. It was delicious.
Dinner: Tomatoes Dish
For dinner I had a simple tomatoes dish but I also ate some fried fish that was left from lunch.
Fruit Salad As a Snack
As for the snack I enjoyed a colourful and healthy fruit salad with orange, pomegranate, banana and kiwi.
I drank a ginger tea in the morning and bought a natural juice made from aronia and apple.
My Impressions After One Month of Strict Diet
This month was a good one in terms of “endometriosis symptoms” and other medical stuff like. I didn’t feel it was difficult to keep the diet but I also made some mistakes.
First of all, I ate too many fried things, especially fried potatoes.
Second of all, after one month of strict diet I bought myself an apple pie as a reward. This wouldn’t have been a problem but the next day I bought another apple pie, and the next day another one plus a bun.
So, as I already told you in my first article, I think rewards are not for me and I should stay away from them.
P.S: Another great dish I have tried since my latest "diet journal" article was gluten free pasta with shrimps. It's delicious too!
Therefore, this was my first month on this journey. I really want to continue and, if I am going to keep on track, with no cheating, I will write you some other diet journal articles.
